Few luxuries make us feel healthier than sipping on an over-priced cold-pressed juice. (You can practically taste all of those vitamins.) But it turns out a juicing habit is super bad for the environment: Making a 16-ounce bottle can produce more than four pounds of damp pulp, essentially food waste because it's so difficult to compost. The scraps usually end up in a landfill, where they rot and give off methane, affecting climate change.

Experts suggest you eat fruits and veggies whole, rather than pulverizing them. You'll get all the health benefits of cold-pressed juice (plus fiber!) without being so wasteful.
